Cominar announces closing of the public offering of its 4.00% Series 3 senior 
unsecured debentures due November 2, 2020 in the principal amount of $100 
QUÉBEC CITY, May 2, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust 
("Cominar") (TSX: CUF.UN) announces today that it has closed the previously 
announced public offering of its 4.00% Series 3 senior unsecured debentures 
due November 2, 2020 in the principal amount of $100 million (the 
"Debentures"). The Debentures were offered at a price of $1,000 per $1,000 
principal amount of Debentures. 
The Debentures were sold pursuant to an Underwriting Agreement with National 
Bank Financial Inc. and BMO Capital Markets, as co-lead underwriters, along 
with a syndicate that also includes RBC Dominion Securities Inc., Desjardins 
Securities Inc., CIBC World Markets Inc., Scotia Capital Inc. and TD 
Securities Inc. for total net proceeds to Cominar of approximately $98.5 
million after deducting the underwriters' fee and the expenses of the 
offering. Cominar intends to use the net proceeds of the offering to repay 
amounts outstanding under its credit facility and for general trust purposes, 
thus replacing shorter-term debt with longer-term debt at a favorable 
long-term interest rate without increasing its aggregate indebtedness. 
The Debentures have not been and will not be registered under the United 
States Securities Act of 1933 and accordingly will not be offered, sold or 
delivered, directly or indirectly within the United States, its possessions 
and other areas subject to its jurisdiction or to, or for the account or for 
the benefit of a U.S. person, except pursuant to applicable exemptions from 
the registration requirements.
